11:01pm
tonight for a talk about guns. specifically a gun store in a town that's never had any gun stores before. kpix 5 reporter kiet do tells us there have been death threats. kiet? >> reporter: the gun store folks asked for extra security and they got it tonight, with three officers guarding over this meeting. tonight, the town council voted unanimously to look into ways to impose a moratorium on future gun stores. as far as the one that opened five weeks ago, what's done is done, and that will stay. tonight's los gatos town hall meeting has taken on a whole new caliber of urgency. police officers are providing extra security off store owner, robert chang, got a death threat last week. >> we're always grateful for law enforcement to step in. >> reporter: los gatos doesn't have any laws restricting gun stores, so staff simply approved the business license last summer. council members say staff should have alerted them about
11:02pm
the gun store right away. >> i'm hoping in the future that our staff will inform us a little sooner about these issues coming forward. >> reporter: the gun store carries fishing and hunting gear, handguns and yes, assault rifles. they opened a few weeks after the school massacre in newtown when tensions about gun control were high. and they still are. >> this is not about access to guns. there are plenty of places to purchase a weapon. the question is, why do we need to be one of those places? >> the only thing that stops a crazy man with a gun is a good guy with a gun. and fact. good guys can't get guns if they don't have stores like templer's to go to. >> these men take on the extra duty of making sure we can exercise our constitutional rights, they're doing us a favor. >> reporter: the town staff learned a valuable lesson.
11:03pm
if anything looks remotely controversial, then let the town officials know. the earliest they can get a moratorium on the books is march 4. dozens of city workers in san francisco are being investigated for sharing porn and gambling on the job. the chronicle says employees at the public utilities commission used city computers to e-mail porn to reach other and visit online gambling sites. the investigation is expected to take about two weeks. catholics stunned by today's news that for the first time in 600 years, a pope is resigning. pope benedict xvi says age and deteriorating health are forcing him to step down. the 85-year-old will remain pope until february 28. shortly after, the college of cardinals will gather to elect a new pope. so who will be the next pontiff? cardinals have always at least in the last several centuries
11:04pm
picked a european. but this time, those considered contenders include cardinals from canada, ghana and nigeria. benedict enforced the church's conservative doctrine to the joy of some, the dismay of others. reporter david jackson asks, which way will the church go next? >> reporter: the next pope is expected to have a decidedly easier path ahead of him. the sex scandal came to light under pope john paul ii. they say now look for youth, a conservative vision and most likely, a european. >> the numbers are really stacked toward the europeans. unless there's some kind of inspirational moment where someone kind of just steps out of the pack -- by that i mean someone who speaks languages, knows the global world, it's a
11:05pm
very difficult job description. >> reporter: but maybe not difficult for cardinal natural olay, a french canadian. >> there is a cardinal mark olay, who is now currently the head of the office of bishops in rome. so we could have a canadian. >> reporter: 119 cardinals will vote in the upcoming conclave to select the new pope, most of whom were appointed by pope benedict xvi and pope john paul. both, staunch conservatives, so expect a conservative voice to be chosen. something young catholics accept. >> i feel like moderate is probably fine. i'm a card-carrying liberal like for sure, but like -- >> but you don't think the church needs to go that direction? >> well, i don't know if people are ready to have a liberal church. >> i would like to see them go
11:06pm
towards pope john paul ii. i would like to see it go that way. >> reporter: obviously those students at st. marys do not speak for everyone, but i did talk to a number of others and nobody expects a liberal pope to be elected. there's just hoping it's somebody who can keep the catholic church out of the news. david jackson, kpix 5. developing news, north korea has conducted a third underground nuclear test. the u.s. geological survey detected a magnitude 4.9 earthquake centered near the site of north korea's last two tests. officials state media also came out and reported that it tested a miniaturized nuclear device in a safe matter. just ten minutes ago, the white house called the test, quote, highly provokive. a former navy seal who says he is the one who shot and killed osama bin laden is leaving the military, without a pension or any health benefits. he told his story to esquire
11:07pm
magazine and the center for investigating reporting, identified only as the shooter. he describes the moment when he pointed his gun at osama bin laden. >> i shot him once in the forehead and another time in the forward and then a in -- in the forehead and then once again. >> he says he's struggling to file a disability claim. the shooter also claims that he has no protection for himself or his family from possible retaliation, and he has trained his own children to hide in the bathtub. coming up, a bay area mom turned amateur detective. how she broke open a college crime ring when police said they were too busy. why a major insurance company may now turn you down if you own a certain kind of
11:08pm
dog. and a popular kind of booze that's being watered down. another mild day today. widespread 60's but find out what one day in my seven-day forecast seven-day forecast will likely see some 70's.

11:10pm
11:11pm
come p one woman whose car was stolen got a call from oakland police. say said, we found it, come pick it up. when she showed up, she thought, hey, wait a minute, has anyone like bothered to look inside? well kpix 5 reporter christin ayers shows us how that woman stumbled upon a crime ring and became an amateur detective. >> reporter: it should have been an open and shut case. a woman who wants to be known only as margie had her car stolen on new year's eve from oakland's lake merit. two weeks later, oakland police found it. >> i received a call from the oakland pd, telling me they had recovered my car. >> reporter: plate swapped. stereo stolen. that should have been the end. but margie was about to stumble
11:12pm
onto an apparent crime ring. she discovered a serial burglar's stash. inside the car, she found a kitchen knife, latex gloves and a crowbar. >> they were professionals. they knew what they were doing. >> reporter: margie says oakland police told her what to do with the evidence. it was up to her. bring it in or -- >> throw it out. >> reporter: something margie says she simply cannot do. >> somebody is out there terrorizing people by stealing their cars, taking items, and the cops don't even want to follow up with it. >> reporter: oakland police say they did search the car, but initially had no proof that what was inside was stolen. so margie decided to take matters into her own hands. >> you were basically playing detective. >> right. but i'm a scientist. i look at evidence. i try to put these pieces together. >> reporter: it didn't take much. >> so on the hard drives, i could see that it belonged to
11:13pm
someone that had worked at cal. >> reporter: she traced the cell phone to this man. >> i thought it would never happen, really. what are the odds? >> reporter: uc berkeley student arman's moam home was burglarized. some of the loot in her trunk belonged to him and his roommate, including the poker chip. >> also the cell phone. >> reporter: ment margie turned his belongings and the rest of the evidence to the berkeley police. >> that's really nice of her. >> reporter: hoping they could finish the detective work that she started. christin ayers, kpix 5. and police were busy in the town of fairfield today where they raided a house. and they found drugs, money,
11:14pm
guns. they also found this guy. three-foot long alligator. police say the couple at the house on begonia boulevard were running a marijuana grow operation. >> do you get the sense that this was for protection or this was a pet? >> it's hard to tell because of its size. it's certainly interesting to have it. i don't really know what their motive is to have it. it certainly would be dangerous if you had kids around or if somebody who was unsuspecting might encounter even a three foot alligator. >> they also found a small arsenal of firearms, more than $20 thousand in cash and bags of pot. the suspects are facing a number of drug and weapons charges. a major insurance company has a message for some dog owners. cbs reporter tony lopez explains why they may turn you down if your pet is a certain breed. >> reporter: it's couch seem
11:15pm
for sabi, the former pit bull show dog and his owner dawn. >> they made an assumption about me and my household that isn't fair. it's not just. >> reporter: they are farmers insurance, which is making a change for certain pet owners in california. your pit bull, rottweiler or wolf hybrid will no longer be covered under your homeowners' insurance policy, meaning if they bite someone, you're out of luck. >> do you just paint them all with a big brush and say you look like a certain breed so we're not gonna cover you? >> reporter: but dawn says she wasn't given a heads-up from her agent. >> so i switched over the weekend to state farm. >> reporter: she fears other pit bull owners may give up on their pets instead of going through the hassle of changing. >> and these dogs have done nothing wrong, just happened to look a certain way. >> reporter: a look some say
11:16pm
has left dog owners in the cold. >> sabi? there you go! good boy! >> reporter: in sacramento, tony lopez, kpix 5. watch out for the zombie apocalypse! what? >> that's the warning that was broadcast in montana when a tv station's emergency alert system got hacked. >> authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising in their graves and attacking the living. follow the messages on the screen. it will be updated as more information becomes available. the bodies are considered extremely dangerous. >> i'll say. well, the montana television network says don't worry, there is no emergency, no zombies. >> but police did get four 911 calls to see if it was true. 911, we need some rain!

11:23pm
about two weeks ago, mara, a local artist who makes sculptures from piano parts, had an idea about how to make it even more impressive, after a donated baby grand was deemed impossible to keep it tuned. he decided to wheel it out to the edge of a cliff and play music on it. >> my idea was to keep playing the same piece. and people will notice how nature will do what it wants to do with the instrument. >> it's really bittersweet. >> reporter: aleeta grew up playing that piano, as did her children. but then economics forced her to get a smaller home. the piano had to go. >> it brought a lot of joy. it's still giving joy. this is a good way to remember it. >> reporter: during the day, anyone can tickle the ivories. he has been playing it every sunset. but then someone complained to the city, which then gave him
11:24pm
